Hillary Emails Exposed After Lawsuit… 7,000 New Bombshells

Failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton may have intermittently emerged from the woods around Chappaqua following her devastating 2016 electoral loss, but she is not out of the woods yet in terms of the private email scandal that dogged her campaign.
According to the Washington Examiner, a federal court hearing was held Thursday as part of the ongoing lawsuit filed by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch against the State Department in search of emails connected to Clinton’s tenure as secretary of State.
During the hearing, the FBI turned over some 7,000 new documents that had been recovered from the laptop of disgraced former Democrat New York Rep. Anthony Weiner. The emails had been discovered as part of the investigation into Weiner’s sexting of a minor, to which he pleaded guilty in 2016.
According to Fox News, it is presumed that the bulk of those 7,000 emails recovered from Weiner’s laptop were sent and/or received by his estranged wife, Huma Abedin, who has long been Clinton’s right-hand aide and confidant.
Unfortunately, it could still be several months to a year yet before those emails end up in the hands of Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton. First they must be reviewed by the State Department to determine if they are personal or official in nature or if they contain any sensitive classified information.
To make matters worse, the State Department is only turning documents over to Judicial Watch at a rate of 500 per month, per court order, and now the pile of documents from which that monthly drip comes from just got a lot bigger.
“This pushes this out until 2020 and beyond,” Fitton stated after the hearing.
“Production is slow because the legal counsel is a holdover from the Obama administration—the folks that are responsible for slow-rolling this are still here.”
Though the State Department has declined to comment regarding the ongoing lawsuit, Fitton said attorneys for the Department have alternately blamed the Trump administration’s temporary hiring freeze and a lack of resources as well as a supposed “diminished public interest” in Clinton’s emails for their slow progress for their slow progress in turning over documents.
“I can’t imagine the Trump White House is not interested in Clinton emails,” Fitton stated. “Six months into the Trump administration and their lawyers are defending Hillary Clinton and the misconduct of the Obama administration.”
The Washington Free Beacon reported that the goal of the Judicial Watch lawsuit, at least in terms of the emails obtained from Weiner’s laptop, is to find out if Abedin had shared “sensitive government information” onto a non-governmental device, which would clearly be a violation of Department protocol and federal regulations regarding the handling of classified information.
Eventually these newly found emails will be turned over to Judicial Watch and made public, and if anything noteworthy is contained therein, rest assured that we will give it the coverage it is due, unlike the bulk of the mainstream media, who’d rather we just all forget about Clinton’s private emailgate scandal.
